I'm in a hurry or could probably check a quick concordance for THE answer. My quick Guess would be, "FEAR NOT."
Why? It's faith's word to a common human condition, used by Jesus and many others, for good reason. So often, one can be stymied or blocked, shut down, depressed or paralyzed--when faith, even a little (a small amount, like Jesus' grain of mustard seed) will start the positive, winning, prevailing, or possible and desirable way through the fear and the situation! And move that Mountain!
"FEAR NOT!" Where and when needed as a word of possibility, is my guess.
I'll guess 70 times in the whole of the Bible.

Isn't the one that the Jewish people say all the time. Know, O Israel, the Lord you God is...?
Didn't Jesus even repeat this verse from the OT many times?

So, the Second Love Commandment is in the Old Testament. But it does NOT appear together with our First Love Commandment to love God with all our heart and soul and mind and strength. But > IN Leviticus 19:18 > "'You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.'"

Amen, Rickey > I understand God wants us to take a personal interest in every person, caring for everyone however God has us relating with each person.

Jesus said the first commandment is to love God with all our heart and soul and mind and strength; and He said the second commandment is "like it" > what does Jesus mean, by saying the commandment to love your neighbor as yourself is "like" our commandment to love God with all our heart and soul and mind and strength???
---Bill_bila5659 on 6/14/07

Bill I like that verse because it is a command, but is also the truth; a person shall love other folks the sameway that he or she loves him or herself.
---Rickey on 6/14/07

We also have Gen. 2:24 "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." repeated in Matt. 19:5, Mark 10:7 and Eph. 5:31 for a grand total of 4 times.

When asked which is the greatest commandment,

"Jesus answered him, 'The first of all the commandments is: "Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength." This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." There is no other commandment greater than these.'" (Mark 12:29-31)
